Third-Generation Ballplayer, Jacob May, Makes Major League Debut

Jacob May made his major-league debut with the Chicago White Sox on April 4 against the Detroit Tigers, getting one RBI in four at-bats.  He was a third-round pick of the White Sox out of Coastal Carolina University in the 2013 MLB Draft.

May is the son of Lee May Jr., currently a minor-league coach in the Boston Red Sox organization.  Lee Jr. played eight minor-seasons with the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals, reaching the Triple-A level but never appearing in a big league game.

Jacob is the grandson of Lee May Sr., a three-time all-star and veteran of 18 major-league seasons.  Lee Sr. slammed 344 HR and 1,244 RBI during his career.

Jacob’s great-uncle, Carlos May, also had a major-league career consisting of ten seasons (1968-1977), primarily playing for the Chicago White Sox.  He was a two-time all-star with the White Sox.
